Granma Newspaper Editor Leaves Cuba for Miami
A high-ranking editor with the Communist Party newspaper Granma has left Cuba to live in Miami.
Aida Calviac Mora told America TeVe Thursday that she arrived in the U.S. through Mexico and plans to stay.
The former international news page editor criticized the state media monopoly and said there is a "crisis of credibility" in the relationship between the public and the Cuban news media.
She said whenever she approached the paper's directors with new ideas and different perspectives for news coverage she was told "it's not a good time" or "the enemy could use it against us."
Show host Juan Manuel Cao called her one of the most important Granma journalists to leave in recent years.
The 29-year-old journalist joins her husband in Miami, a former Radio Rebelde reporter.
